May 6, 2019 · Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO) in Digestive Health

Wife no longer has SIBO and the diagnosis she had it is questionable.

Oct 19, 2018 · Somatic symptom disorder (SSD): How to address it? in Mental Health

She has been there two months with no debilitation nausea. Her GI doctor presented her case at a symposium in Baltimore and they came up with a SSD diagnosis. The enviromental change cure is a mystery. By the way, the home enviroment had been checked for mold and every other possible cause with negative results.

It had been agreed by a number of doctors that she did have SSD. Symptoms surprisingly only occurred when she was at home. She has since moved into assisted living and her SSD nausea disappeared. It appears her symptoms were location related, a mystery solved by changing her location. The mystery as to why she only suffered when at home has not been solved.

Dec 5, 2017 · Somatic symptom disorder (SSD): How to address it? in Mental Health

My wife is suffering from chronic nausea for which, after numerous testing, there is no identifiable physical cause. She has reached the point where she meets the definition of SSD detailed on the Mayo Clinic website which states “Somatic symptom disorder involves having a significant focus on physical symptoms, even though there is no obvious physical or medical cause for the symptoms, to the point that it causes major emotional distress and problems functioning. Has anyone else been thought to have SSD, and what if anything was done to address the condition?

Oct 18, 2017 · Nausea in Digestive Health

For four years I wake up every morning with nausea. Many tests, hospital visits, different doctors and just about an annual endo have shown no identifiable cause of my nausea. Even though the doctors have not come right out an said it, but many believe my nausea is caused by Somatic Delusion Psychosis. In other words, I wake up an believe I will be sick even though this fact is contradicted by reality that there is nothing wrong with me. A recent endo however for the fist time did identify a possible cause, chronic bile reflux. However, even with this diagnosis, the GI doctor just gave me an IV nausea medication, and since I still had nausea the next day, he made the conclusion that the nausea was not a GI problem. Again believing the nausea is a mental problem and not a GI problem even though just five days ago his endo diagnosis was “chronic bile reflux”. I have made repeated requests for him to prescribe “ursodiol acid” to treat my constant nausea and the throwing up bile when I am able to eat. I am just getting over a broken tibia and need to go to a rehab facility for PT, but I am too sick and weak that they would not be able to perform the needed daily PT. I am thinking of getting a second opinion from a new GI doc, but that is just kicking the can down the road, especially when many in the medical profession believe I have a psychosis generated illness. It is hard to believe doctors think that i am so psychotic that I make myself sick every morning so that I can throw up bile, am so weak I can hardly walk, spent the majority of the day in bed and have lost fifteen pounds. The only medication my current GI doc has be on is Walmarts anti acid. I have reached the stage that I would rather die than to continue to live like this. Who do I turn to. The doctors say my condition is mental and the psychiatrist say it is physical I guess my question is, has anyone had experience with ursodiol acid to treat bile reflux? And question two is has anyone been diagnosed with “Somatic Delusion Psychosis”?

She is in a full leg brace with a broken tibia so it is a major task for the nurse or CA to take her to the toilet with a non weight bearing leg. Her urologist has recommended the catheter with constant checks for infection.

Medicare will pay for the kit if a doctor orders the test.

She had the catheter out, but the urge to urinate continued so, to keep the nurses from constantly answering her need to pee, the catheter was reinserted.
